Similarity update: new pairs
EUIPO is improving the efficiency and completeness of Similarity by assessing the similarity of the Group Title terms of the Taxonomy. This progress has just been initiated but has already resulted in the implementation of nearly 500 high level pairs that can be used for reference. This new initiative will offer more intuitive results for a wider range of pairs where content has not yet been completed.
Similarity is powered by the HDB (Harmonised Database)and compares goods or services and assesses their degree of similarity. When the exact searched pair is not found, Similarity uses the Taxonomy structure of the HDB to locate alternative terms within the same market sector as reference.
